I’m exhausted. San Diego Comic-Con International 2013 is over, and boy did Saturday in Hall H deliver the goods. If you weren’t in San Diego, unable to make it into Hall H (those lines got insane) or just weren’t around for our coverage over the weekend or late last week — I’ve got you covered. After the jump you’ll find a round up of everything you missed, and most importantly, the ten coolest things to come out of the convention. This is your one-stop shop for everything. Looking for a photo, a recap, a video, a trailer – we have it all. Relive the best of Comic Con from your home.
The big new trend this year at Comic Con is big actors reprising their iconic roles on the Hall H stage. We begin with those moments:
The lights went out during the Marvel panel and Tom Hiddleston appeared on the stage at Hall H dressed in full character as Loki. The resulting verbal tirade was awesome. Watch it here.
Andrew Garfield showed up to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 panel dressed and in character as Spider-Man. You can read about it and hear our reaction to the exclusive footage screened, or just watch video from the stunt here. Sony also released a teaser trailer giving us our first official video look at Jamie Fox as Electro – You can also watch that here.
Comic Con is too large of an event for celebrities to actually walk the show floor, but that doesn’t stop some of them from trying. This year, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, Doctor Who‘s eleventh doctor Matt Smith and The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman are among the actors we know who donned a disguise and walked the show floor this year. See how they did it here.
And Comic Con this year had some big movie announcements from Warner Bros/DC Comics and Marvel:
Zack Snyder announced that he will direct a Superman/Batman Movie Inspired by Frank Miller‘s ‘The Dark Knight Returns‘. No title was announced, and no actors were mentioned, although it was confirmed in the press release that the film would introduce a new version of Batman. Snyder did say that this is effectively the sequel to Man of Steel, and a press release confirms Henry Cavill as Superman as well as the returns of Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane. Watch this epic announcement here.
At the tail end of the Marvel Studios panel, Kevin Feige pulled a Steve Jobs and delivered a “One More Thing” brining our Joss Whedon to screen a video teaser trailer which revealed the title of The Avengers sequel — Avengers: Age of Ultron. Read about the teaser and what this means for phase 2 of the Marvel movie universe here and see Whedon talk about how he is changing the comic book origins to fit the new movie storyline.
